Do turtles sleep above or below water (like at top or down on bottom)? Mine sleep on top of the plants with their heads close by the surface.

they usually sleep on top but some of them like sleeping under water..as long as they are not stuck by something then it\'s ok they can hold their breath for a long time

my guys sleep in the water, but on top of the plants so that it\'s easy for them to access the top of the water. they never sleep on their basking area, though. they love the water.
